Rambling thoughts, Rambling photos...

This is what I looked like all day yesterday.

See, they DO look alike!!!

One of the things I got for Christmas was a very cute little purse from one of my aunts. It's perfect for carrying a small knitting project, if you have one. Normally, I do, and in theory right now I have several. But as I thought about which project should go in that little bag, I realized that I was at a rare impasse where even my small projects are fairly cumbersome right now. The only exception is a pair of socks I have in my desk here at work... and frankly, they stay in my desk, so they don't really need a cute little bag of their own!

There's the Creatures of the Reef shawl for MIL, which is just one big ball of lace weight Espresso, but the pattern is many pages, and I don't want to fold and crumple it into a bag. I've also got a hat going in Pastanza, but it's fair isle, so there are many balls. Here's Aslan helping (notice the lack of hands-on assistance. No mohair in this yarn - it's a llama/wool blend.)

Clearly the only solution to not having anything for that purse is to start a new project, right?

And while we're doing cute cat pictures, here's a big mean Trevor, feeling very irrate that I wouldn't let him actually get inside the refrigerator.

I know. He's very intimidating, isn't he.

Oh! And I got a not-really-halfway-but-I'm-rounding-up decent photo of the rose necklace from DSS, penny for size of course.


And this is what I feel like when there are extra people in my house and my schedule is thrown off:

They do like alike! That is a nice consolation :)

It's so nice to know that I'm not the only idiot on the planet. I don't have boots that look alike, but I certainly have many pairs of socks that look alike. Of course, the mismatched socks are always worn on days when they are obvious.

Always love the cat photos. :)

Happy and Peaceful New Year to you!

ah,.........Amie? Aslan looks a bit annoyed in the picture with the yarn, maybe you need to give him his own yarn in his personal favorite fiber?
the sleeping picture really makes him look like my Thaddeaus
I was shocked when I saw that, good thing Thaddeaus was annoying his sister at the time.....

Aslan wasn't annoyed (though he'd second your recommendation that I get him his own mohair, his little mohair blanket was just out of the frame of the camera, so he wasn't suffering!) He was just mid-knead, so the camera caught his "hey baby" eyelids.
